Oceanside student wins Arrive Alive award

Jul 12, 2018
Oceanside’s Daniel Dickey takes home his first place prize.

Students from Midcoast schools are among the winners and honorable mentions of the 14th annual Arrive Alive Creative Contest. Sponsored by the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein, the contest is open to graduating high school seniors in Maine.

The contest asks students to come up with a creative message about the dangers of drinking and driving and/or distracted driving. In past years, Mid-Coast School of Technology students from the Design/Technology program have submitted short films, animations, comic books and even a video game. This year however, two students were honored for their digital illustrations.

Daniel Dickey, of Oceanside High School in Rockland, placed first with an illustration showing the “high stakes” game that is drinking and driving or distracted driving. And Medomak Valley’s Logan J. Wheeler got honorable mention. Both created their entries at MCST.

At a June 13th ceremony, the first place winners received new laptops; second and third place, Apple iPads; and all entrants receive prizes of some kind. In the past 14 years, the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein has given away over $130,000 in prizes to help educate teenagers on the risks of dangerous driving.
